SHORT NOTICE WEBINAR
Live Webinar January 4th, 2017 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm EST
Activity Type: Education – Course or Training  1 Hour  1 PDU
Provider: Fissure Corporation (Rep 1026)

Our lessons learned from project teams over the past few years shows there are some common “pain points” that exist.

These show up on all types of projects and inflict pain for both the Project Manager and the Team Member.

These data show the pain points cluster around:

  • Communications,
  • Scope,
  • Time and
  • Resources.

If we dig into the root cause we can find that there are opportunities for us to fix these pain points and transform our teams into the high performance teams that we desire.

Foundation For Clear Requirements

Share

Online Course – Recorded  – $12.95 USD 1 PDU
Activity Type: Education – Online or Digital Media – Course
Presented: Solutions Cube Group (REP 2451)

This webinar is First in a 3 part series series on Requirements Definition by Solutions Cube.  Although this module is a part of the series – each module in the series can be taken individually.

In many companies, the Requirements Definition process fails
to define the “REAL” Business Need for a project.

What may appear to be great solutions are often developed without any tie to the real project needs. Unfortunately, the discovery of missing, out of scope, or poorly defined requirements often happens much too late in the project lifecycle leading to project failure.

Avoiding these costly mistakes requires a clear understanding of the requirements definition process and the right tools and techniques to define complete requirements for a project.

Solutions Cube Group’s Building the Foundation for Clear Requirements webinar enables participants to recognize the barriers preventing project teams from defining clear requirements.

Participants will learn how to create a requirements definition foundation that engages the right stakeholders, alignment on the project scope and progressive elaboration techniques for maintaining the right level of focus throughout the requirements definition lifecycle.

In this 1 hour in-depth webinar participants learn:

  • How to use the Project Scope Statement deliverables to guide the team’s creation of “real” project need and project solution statements
  • How to use collaborative techniques to lead team members through requirements creation activities
  • How to use the Wave Concept to progressively build requirements using collaborative techniques
  • Techniques for ensuring the Requirements Definition efforts are on the right track, from the onset of the project

Provider: IAG Consulting (REP 2858)

So you’ve been assigned a complex,
poorly defined project concept
So now what?

Nothing is worse (or better) for a senior project manager or analyst than being handed a project that is: strategic, very large, and way outside your comfort zone in complexity.

These projects will sometimes roll around the halls of big companies for months while they struggle to gain sufficient momentum and clarity to really move forward with a sense of purpose and direction.

  • Let’s say one of these career-bruisers/-builders is yours?
  • What do you do next?

This session is about the tactics of early-stage project intake and clarification – getting clarity efficiently.

Learning objectives:

  1. Inside the project intake process – why is intake so dysfunctional?
  2. The action plan – simple steps that drive project clarity and milestones that deliver benefit.
  3. Targeted result – time tested deliverables that work

1 in 3 technology projects fail.

  • 15% of all technology projects fail because of high cost variance.
  • 18% are unsuccessful because they were substantially late.

Why such a dismal success rate? All project managers know this simple fact: Project Success is Difficult. But is it as simple to define what changes are necessary to increase project success?

Topics Covered:

  • Precise management of resources. Who is working on what?
  • Accurate project tracking. How do I get this project back on schedule?
  • Definition of project terms. What does “done” really mean?

During this webinar we will explore five ways to improve your odds of successfully completing projects on time and on budget.

Presenter: Curt Finch (LinkedIn) is the CEO of Journyx, the first company to provide Web-based time-tracking, project accounting and resource management solutions & author of Valuing Time as a Business Resource.
